Town Planning for Property Subdivision

If you are planning to subdivide a lot, we will find out the key facts about the property and information about the subdivision planning approval requirements.

Subdividing, also known as ‘reconfiguration of a lot’, includes:

  • creating lots from subdividing another lot
  • merging two or more lots into one lot
  • rearranging the boundaries of a lot without creating a new lot
  • creating a community title scheme
  • creating a ‘volumetric subdivision’ (using space above or below the land)
  • dividing land into parts by agreement, such as by leasing part of a lot for a period exceeding 10 years
  • creating an easement to give access to a lot from a road.
